The more you recycle the less you'll pay! A recycling bin can be obtained at DPW&P Customer Service.
Set recyclables and trash at the curb between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on your scheduled trash/recycling day.
Residents of Worcester can dispose of household waste via our pay as you throw Yellow Trash Bag program.
As a reminder, gloves and masks should be disposed of in your yellow City trash bags, not in recycling bins. Recycling bins containing gloves or masks will not be collected.
If you suspect that the yellow bags you have purchased are defective, please call Customer Service at 508-929-1300. You can return them for an exchange at the point of sale or bring defective bags to 20 East Worcester Street, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for exchange.
